Amy Folkestad is a graphic designer in Centennial, CO
Growing your business through design
As a graphic designer my main goal is to help your business grow and become more profitable through functional, user friendly, beautiful design. I have a degree in biology and art and love combining my analytical and artistic skills. Graphic design has been a natural transition for me, since understanding the aesthetic design, as well as planning and executing the function for a design, requires both left and right brain thinking.
If you are in need of a graphic designer for web or print, or would like to hire me to teach you how to accomplish a specific task, please

A client contacted me wanting to create a group photo of his family, who happened to live all over the country. Each sibling had a picture taken of their family with a white background, and then I Photoshopped the group together. The final image will be used as a gift for their Dad.

Photoshop is meant to be a pixel mover. Meaning, if you want to add in a person, remove an obstruction, or put in a different background, this is the ideal program for you. Photoshop also has a number of graphic design applications, including book making and digital scrapbooking.
